We all have secrets or things people wouldn’t guess about us, and let’s be honest: they don’t have to be embarrassing as long as they’re surprising.
1. I was attacked by a cheetah when I was 9 in Africa.
“Ok, WHAT?! A cheetah noticed me and snatched me, rolling me all over the ground, cradling me, putting on a show for everyone in a safari resort, a giant encaged welcome.
So much for calm creatures strolling around. My parents gazed with disbelief. Impotent.
2. I have lived in 6 different countries and on 3 different continents.
From the time I was nine months old, I lived in Bangladesh (Dhaka), Namibia (Africa), Vietnam (Hanoi), the Netherlands, England (Weybridge), Scotland (now Malta), and the United Kingdom (Holland).
3. I love playing computer games!
You name it: Counter-Strike, Seven Days to Die, The Last of Us, Minecraft, etc. I’m glued to the PlayStation and online games! Games being

4. I used to weigh over 14 stone…
I’ll admit that I was always on the hefty side as a kid; my metabolism was, to put it mildly, less than ideal. However, after relocating to the United Kingdom, I finally made an effort to improve my appearance.
I signed up for Weight Watchers in London and took it super seriously; I was only 16 years old, and everyone else was mums losing the baby weight! Or getting married and wanting to fit in their dress.
5. I met mother Teresa & had tea.
When I was about 10, we were on holiday in Bombay – India; she was there, we asked as a family to meet her, she said yes, we sat with her, had something to drink, she gave us these little charms and prayers.
6. I used to do a lot of Ballet/ Dancing
I’ve taken ballet tests and classes in jazz, hip-hop, and other types of dance, and I still dance on occasion. Yes, please!
7. I have sung my whole life, in the choir, in my spare time and even recorded a few songs.
I always sang soprano, but never something I wanted to take up as a career; I’m more musical than anything.
I have recorded a few songs, and my project doing the MYP (Middle Years Programme) Was created. My music video and song! Top marks! (What can I say? ) Now I’m like, #Cringe!
8. Put me in water, and I won’t get out!
Yap, water baby all the way, growing up in these warm countries, it’s been in my blood; swimming is so therapeutic; put me in a pond, sea, pool! I won’t get out!
What are a few things we wouldn’t know about you?!
